International Industries Inc. (III) recently sold and delivered an EdgeTech Model 4125-P 600/1600 kHz Side Scan Sonar System to the City of Baca Raton Police, Boca Raton, Florida . This was purchased on the III GSA Contract. This is the 33rd of these Sonar Systems sold by III.

The 400/900 kHz set is the perfect tool for shallow water survey applications, providing an ideal combination of range and resolution. The 600/1600 kHz set is ideally suited for customers that require ultra high resolution imagery in order to detect very small targets (SAR).

The 4125-P systems are low cost, Digital Telemetry Side Scan Sonars specifically designed for Search and Discovery plus Harbor Security. the systems are very portable with a small water resistant topside processor that allows the sonar to be operated from very small boats.

Two dual simultaneous frequency sets are available for the 4125 depending on the application. The 400/900 kHz set is the perfect tool for shallow water survey applications, providing an ideal combination of range and resolution. The 600/1600 kHz set is ideally suited for customers that require ultra high resolution imagery in order to detect very small targets (SAR).

Power input is 12/24VDC or 110/230 VAC. The Towfish weighs only 34 lb. Built-in Depth and Altitude sensors provide excellent control of the system down to 100m.

Major applications, in addition to the SAR and Harbor Security tasks include Geo-Hazard Surveys, Route Survey, Geological/Geophysical Survey, and Archeological Survey.

Coupled with the Chesapeake Technology Inc. SonarWiz5, the system is a great tool for SAR and Security Groups.

State and Local agencies can also purchase these items on GSA if they are intended for Disaster Recovery Activities,

Chic Ransone, President of III, believes that this addition to the Enforcement Division’s equipment should provide the City of Boca Raton with excellent capability to perform its Homeland Security missions as well as heighten the search and rescue capabilities of the City.
